Fortune package and copyright


I have packaged an unofficial Debian package containing French fortunes 
cookies, and I'd like to upload it into the Debian archive.

For that, I have to verify the copyright is compliant which the DFSG, but 
there is either no copyright, or "presumed to be in public domain".

On debian-user-french, I have been told that each fortune itself is a 
quotation, and it this legal to include it, as long as it is no longer 
than 4 lines. However, the source package itself, which includes all the 
fortunes, needs a copyright from the person which has compiled that.

Could anybody confirm that, so I can contact each author and ask him for 
a correct copyright file ?
